Public Safety- A Strong Police force that is dedicated to tracking parolees and sexual offenders along with keeping criminals and criminal activity out of El Cajon. Better base pay for Police and Fire services and access to equipment needed to stay a leader in the field.
Recreation- Activities and after school programs for children. Improvements to local parks and investment in facility upgrades. Adult programs and leagues. Seasonal events and/or attractions.
Economic- Stability, growth, and opportunities. Create a city environment that will be a hub for new jobs and employment opportunities. Manage the city budget with an emphasis on balancing it without additional taxes or drawing from the general fund. Making the tough decisions on cutting in areas of excess. Working with contractors to impose incentives for finishing projects ahead of schedule and penalties for delays.
Social Networking- Be a responsible neighbor. Work in joint effort with surrounding cities and State government. Make sure we are getting our share of state funds. Possible corporate sponsorship parks, Arts Center, etc...
Entertainment and the Arts- Investment into a hub for performing arts and shows. I will help to ensure that the East County Performing Arts Center is a well managed venue for Arts and Entertainment.
New Business- Continue the redevelopment but broaden the scope. Fill the vacant land in El Cajon with new businesses. Persue an outdoor superstore such as Cabelas, Bass Pro shops, Gander Mountain, etc.
Taxes- No new tax increases. Find ways to balance the city budget without putting the burden on tax-payers (i.e. residents and businesses)
